A highly touted renewable energy program created by Central Vermont Public Service Corp. was honored Monday with the Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence.

CVPS Cow Power, which turns manure into energy, and Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport were the recipients of the state’s highest environmental award. The award recognized Cow Power’s benefits of improved air and water quality, reduced greenhouse gases and generating renewable energy.

The award was presented by Gov. James Douglas to Cow Power coordinator David Dunn and Marie Audet of Blue Spruce Farm, the first dairy farm in CV’s service territory to produce electricity from manure.

“Through their partnership, the Audet family and Central Vermont Public Service have given new economic hope to many of our Vermont farms while providing customers a fully renewable energy choice,” Douglas said in presenting the award at a Statehouse ceremony. “In creating CVPS Cow Power, the company built an entirely new economic and environmental model for manure management, and the Audets were brave enough to become pioneers and prove that it would work.”
